Abdullah Sami/Spiritmuse, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $36.99 38.99
One of the rarest jazz records of the 70s Chicago scene – a set that's somewhat different than both the AACM sound of the period, and some of the more spiritual groups of the time! There's definitely a spiritual sound here, but the music also has some looser, loft jazz modes – and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of those records that no home should be without – not only a pivotal album in the growth of bossa nova in the 60s – but a set that also really helped set the career of tenorist Stan Getz on fire!

Brownswood (UK), 2018. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99 19.98
Joe Armon Jones sings and plays lots of cool Wurlitzer electric piano on this gem of an album – but the whole thing is maybe even more of a tribute to the warmly collaborative spirit of the contemporary London scene, as it is to the talents of the man himself!
